Newbie from the north west
« on: July 12, 2018, 01:37:26 PM »
Hi all. just joined the forum and club.
I'm in the process of rebuilding a 1981 RD200DX. It was a stalled restoration project I picked up on ebay, so I have a few issues with missing parts, wrong parts, butchered parts, chromework etc. but I'm having 'fun' doing it. I bought the exact same model, colour etc. brand new in 1979 but it got stolen after 3 months only just run in (I replaced it with a 1980 RD250E-wish I still had it), so I didn't get to properly enjoy it. Hopefully I'll get more use out of this one-if I ever finish it!
I haven't found the For Sale section of the forum yet (does it take a few days to access it after joining?) but I'm hoping it may prove useful.
I also own a 1976 CB400/4, 1999 R1 and a 2017 MT10.

Welcome to the Forum
Assuming you are a "Paid Up" member, one of the mods need to grant you access to the For Sale and Wanted sections, it doesn't happen automatically.
Hopefully they will see this topic, if not send a PM to one of them
Good luck with your 200 rebuild
